from affording flexible and elastic cur

According to the estimate of the Treas

deficit of tt,4.K3, exclusive of Panama
canal expenditures, for the fiscal year
ending June 90, H. the first fiscal year
of President Wilton's administration. In
cluding tlie canal expenses, the deficit Is
estimated a $S2.-30,S. The canal ex
penditures, he adds, however, may be paid
under the law from bond sales. The esti
mated leeelpt for that year are 710,000,
f. while the ordinary appropriations are
estimated at fnWMfiB. and the canal

For the current fiscal year, ending;
June 30, 1912. Mr. MacVeaffh estimate
i that there will be a surplus of MO.J0O.00O,
exclusive of Panama, canal expenditures,
and a deficit of fl.00,0. Including the
cunal transactions. He estimates receipts
for this year at $711,000,000 and ordinary
disbursements at W'O.ROO.OOO,
In connection with financial reform Mr.
MacVengh asys the people are helpless
i.nder existing evils. The present pystem
never permits free action at any time,
because Its liability to sudden constraint
and restriction la always' a part of tfle
nation's financial consciousness.
'There never Is a time," continues the
secretary of the treasury, "when there Is
any long look ahead, except when we are
In the midst of a panic, when there Is n
long look of disaster ahead. There Is
never a long look of ease and convenience
and prosperity ahead."
In the crop-moving season, Mr. Mac-
, Vcagh points out, thorn la a special stress
and restraint, and the secretary found an
object lesson In the conditions during the
lust autumn, when tho banks wpro called
vpon to finance the movement of rceord-
' breaking cropst necessitating tho employ
ment of nearly alt of their jwallablo re
sources under "our constricting system.'
t "This relief which Js no urgently needed
py the legitimate business and enterprise
cof our people." IMluldK. "Is not relief
from a ffjiancja'f situation built up by a
financial work Itself, but is from a svs
tern and; condition superinduced bythe
m'i ciiiiiiviiii aim lorveu upon me inisi
nets community- and upon American so
ciety. The banking and currency system
lis the product of federal law, and there
can be no relief from It until congress
acts. And this la why congressional c
'tlon Is urgent"
Too Mweli Moiier la trite.
Pointing out that tho banks fortunately
had been able to flnanc the crop move
ment of the last autumn unaided by the
government, the secretary euya that the
iftiiomaloua relation between the Treasury
iiepanmeiit and the general financial
world Is a part of the system to be re
formed. He added; "Taking large sums
or actual money out of the ordinary
nnnnciai use ana locking It up as d dead
mass in the vault of the treasury la
proceeding as unscientific and unreasoned
ss any other jwrt of our unreasoned and
unscienuno banning and currency nys
tern." A relief measure reforming the bank
ing and currency system, the secretary
declares, "mutt Include, among Its neces
sary features, ryovlslona for never-falling
reserves, and never-falling currency, and
for the perfect elasticity and flexibility
of both: for the permanent organisation
and organised co-operation of the banks, J
which are now suffering and causing the
nation to suffer by reason of their un
organlxed stale! for a central -agency, to '
represent and act -for the organised and
"operative banks-thls agency to be t '
eurely free from political or trust control
but with the government having adequate
and Intimate supervision of It: for ln .

that no one bank can be owned, con

or Indirectly. Hy any other bank; for the
equality of all banks, national or state,
